    seriously though, how many times have you seen a team run an end around and watch the opposing defense not have any ability to stop it with minimal gain? If I am Cos I will fall asleep tonight watching Sprague and Smith run around my 4-5 star defensive ends.

    I'm no football coach, but where were the LB's on that play? Isn't it there space to cover?

    Nebraska is soft at the DL and slow at LB and the secondary.. That is why that play works so well..

    Their whole defense looked SLOW and they consistently took bad angles. The worst defense I have seen in a long time.

    It's been that way all year long. I'm glad Corey McKeon's slow complaining little a$$ is gone now. :thumbsup:

    Despite what a few players have stated about "not giving up on the coaching staff", It's obvious by their playing they had.

    This play seems like we were almost running it as a option play. Option 1: handoff to the crossing WR, Option 2: hold and hand out to the Running back.

    It's like a Spread-option zone read but its run out of the I instead of the Shotgun.
